Lower ceiling, Semien looks like he could be a potentially nice everyday player but Hawkins remains the Sox's lone true impact bat in the minors (now that Garcia is in the bigs). I know he struggled a lot this year, but it was a very aggressive placement for a 19-year-old whose still barely a year removed from high school. More often than not scouts will grade prospects on how high they can fly. Hawkins (and maybe even Thompson and Anderson) at this point, still beat Semien in that regard.
